Two men linked to Trump's lawyer Giuliani arrested on campaign: finance violations
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two men associated with U.S. President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani have been arrested over violations of campaign finance laws, a spokesman for the Manhattan U.S. Attorney's office said on Thursday.
The two Florida businessmen, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, are expected to appear in a federal court in Virginia later on Thursday, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter.
Giuliani and John Dowd, the lawyer for the two men, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
